Quote of the day

The artist must create a spark before he can make a fire and before art is born, the artist must be ready to be consumed by the fire of his own creation. – Auguste Rodin who was born on this day in 1840.

  1. Great quote!

    You might enjoy some rare footage of Rodin that’s been recently uncovered. Posing for the camera more than really working, but still fascinating to see the great man in motion: http://www.openculture.com/2012/07/rare_film_of_sculptor_auguste_rodin_working_at_his_studio_in_paris_1915.html
